What we do

NPEC facilitates state-of-the-art measurement of plant phenotypes to support research on genotype-phenotype associations. Establishing these associations is critical for the development of novel climate-proof crops and cropping systems. These novel crops and systems are necessary to secure our future high-quality food production, and improve the ecological sustainability of food production.

High-throughput phenotyping

The NPEC facility consists of six modules, each offering a dedicated phenotyping platform with its own measurement systems. These systems each support specialized cameras and sensors.

NPEC offers academia and collaborating corporate Research & Development departments many opportunities to carry out accurate and high-throughput plant phenotyping. They can study plant performance in relation to relevant biotic and abiotic factors across a range of scales, from cell to field.

NPEC is jointly hosted at two locations: Wageningen University & Research and Utrecht University.

About NPEC
